Quarter finals in Basel

23.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger has made it through to the round of the last eight at his home tournament in Basel.


A good performance in  two tie-breaks was just right for our champ to defeat Finland's Jarkko Nieminen 7-6(6), 7-6(1).


Roger had to work rather hard in both sets and also faced breaks by his opponent. But he was there when it really mattered, especially during the tie-break of the second set, only dropping one single point to Nieminen.


Our two-time defending champion now meets Simone Bolelli of Italy who beat Marcel Granollers 6-4 6-2.
